A Little of This; A Little of That

Things don't really irk me much and once I write this out, it'll be GONE! DONE! I don't dwell anymore like I use to because life is SO grand and wonder-filled that I just don't have time for it so, gonna put it out here and let it go!
(What I'm doing here is showing you how to live a stress-free life! So many would let something like this go on and on in their heads for DAYS! ... and be binging while doing it. lol)
Anyway, I put out my blog from yesterday on a few sites I'm on and received some truly great responses. Thank you! :)
Today, I received a response from one person saying she was "shocked" at the price of my program! (What?? It's too low? heh!) Well, I have to say, I'm shocked that she is shocked! (How's that for a comeback? )
Since reading that, I've looked at it in various ways (this is good for you to do if you are planning programs yourself).
First, let's start with my training. I began researching health and healing about 34 years ago. I spent 16 years in "formal" training which cost me literally thousands of dollars. I've got books, dvds, cds (again, investments of THOUSANDS of dollars) and articles (o.k., basically free except for the paper I printed them out on and the ink to print) which I've studied.
For 34 years I've used myself as the guinea pig in healing asthma, allergies, infections, depression, injuries, excess weight and more caused by various things including food choices, societal imprints, emotions and unawareness/consciousness.
I've got knowledge I've gained through my own study as well as knowledge gained from other people and their study. I've got understanding from my own healings plus the hundreds of students and clients I've worked with. I've got wisdom from just staying alive for 60 plus years and the ongoing healing and health I'm experiencing.
So, let's get down to the nitty-gritty. The price of "Tap Into Your Ideal Weight". Pretty much the price people charge for their trainings/coachings/teleclasses/webinars, etc. is arbitrary. If you ask them, I'm guessing they probably can't tell you how they came up with their price.
Recently I paid $1995 for a program that was supposed to help me be a better marketer. I was sorely disappointed. The first few sessions were quite good. After she got past the "100% guarantee" part of the program (if you didn't feel you were receiving your money's worth by a certain time, you could receive your money back) the program went down-hill. It was sad. The first hour of the final 90 minutes of the program, she might just as well have been off the call. She even admitted she wasn't present mentally. The final half hour of that 90 minute session she spent upselling her next program. The "bonus" hour we received she spent ~ yes, upselling her next program.
I don't DO that! The whole time, I am present; I am available, everyone interacts with me. At NO time do I spend time upselling my next, newest program. (I don't HAVE one!)
Let's break it down financially ~
The program runs 6 weeks with each call lasting approximately 90 minutes, PLUS, 2 half-hour one-on-one calls with me.
That's a full 9 hours of semi-private interactive work/play PLUS, 1 full hour of private. That breaks down to $30 per hour. (I've never done this and am now thinking ~ I really need to raise my price! EXCEPT! I want to make this affordable to as many people as possible!)
Add in the time I spend preparing for each session and the time I spend after, cleaning up the notes and adding in whatever I feel can make it even more informational and the hourly to me is even less.
ALSO, my engineer takes time out of HIS life to edit the audio and post it so participants can listen to it any time they feel to for FREE (to me). (Very often we'll miss or forget something that happened that could be very relevant to one's process so, it's best to listen to the audio repeatedly).
*big sigh* Wow! O.k! I'm feeling better now.
On to what I REALLY wanted to write about today (which will most likely be uploaded tomorrow. Wait for it!)
